How to Make White Chocolate Chex Mix
In a large bowl, add cereal, nuts, pretzels and set aside.
Melt chocolate in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted and smooth.
Pour the melted chocolate over top the cereal, nuts and pretzels, stirring gently to evenly coat all.
Spread the mixture out onto a sheet of wax paper and let it cool for about 20 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened.
